Empowering youths to take their stand in society will lead to the fight against climate change.

Thise was the message relayed by Miss Sigatoka Town Council, Kalesi Bari, who is among the seven queen contestants competing in the 2017 Coral Coast Carnival in Sigatoka.

“We, the youths, can do a lot when educated the right manner, because we are the future leaders of the next sunrise,” Ms Bari of Vitawa, Rakiraki, said.

“We need to be empowered as we support the Fijian Government’s pledge on pumping above its weight when it comes to climate change. Every individual has their talents and there is a need to utilise it wisely. It is important in our society if we need to fight climate change in our own way.”

This is her second pageant event since finishing as the second runner-up at the Lautoka Farmers Carnival last year. She represented the Lautoka City Sector.

“I thank my family for their ongoing support and likewise my sponsors, and the event as a whole, not forgetting Francis Lei-Smith, our chaperone,” she said.

The event’s major sponsor for the week-long carnival is the Sigatoka Town Council, co-sponsored by Coastline transport Limited Sigatoka, Jack’s of Fiji, Kasabia Hardware and Sigatoka Electric Limited.

Other sponsors include Ka-Viti Waters, Vansh Investment, Rio Car Wash, Rao’s fastfood & Pizza, Razim Bakery & Cake Shop, Laxco Print & Design and Paper Power Bookshop.

The festival ends on Saturday with the crowing of the Queen, who will then move on to represent the township at the Fiji Pageant.
